Is this the fourth cut of One From the Heart to be released (1982 theatrical, VHS/TV, DVD/BluRay, Reprise), or were there others? I looked but couldn't find a definitive answer.

I think this would be the third edit. I recall RAH posting when the blu-ray was released that there was only 1 version theatrically released. But I swear I saw a different version in LA when it was released (I saw it multiple times). The opening sequence with Franny and her tickets to Bora-Bora was handled differently. When I saw the film again on disc, I had an immediate "wait...that's not what I saw before!" reaction. Time plays tricks on ones memories, but I'm pretty sure that what I saw was different from what was released on disc.

As for this release, I could not be more excited. It is a film of incredible beauty and an amazing production on every level. (One can assume Barbie was influenced by it. ) Hopefully without the weight of the initial "Coppola's big gamble" media hype that surrounded the film it can be viewed with more accepting eyes. Much too appreciate, including Tom Wait's fantastic score.

I thought the initial VHS home video release was a different cut from what was in theaters, and then the DVD release was slightly altered from that? My first exposure to it was on DVD, so it's the only version I know.

So, it's 2 UHD discs and no regular blu-rays?
The specs read like it's 4 discs: two UHD, two Blu-Rays, with the same content on both formats. The Amazon.uk listing indicates the blu-rays are all-region, but caveat emptor until that is confirmed.

I recall seeing "One from the Heart" when it opened at Radio City Music Hall in New York. After it ended, I pondered its problems. The thing that struck me immediately was that all four leading characters were unlikable, which made it hard to like the film.

In another forum someone posted that the original VHS release was the theatrical cut, but the subsequent DVD and BR releases were a different edit. I have no way to verify it, but it does sort of confirm my believe that the version I saw in the theaters was not what I saw on disc. If that information is correct, then this will be the third version.

This is a seriously heavy restoration project.

Beautiful film!
Back in 2018 when we launched the first Cinema Reborn retrospective in Sydney our plans to include the newly restored Cotton Club were thwarted by the copyright holder. Coppola responded very kindly by sending us his personal 35mm print of One from the Heart which we screened only once. It was (and remains ) pristine, and should/could with minimal resto effort make the transition to a 4K scan and disc. It’s a gorgeous print.

Prints are never used as digital masters, unless no pre-print survives.

I also saw it at RCMH in its premiere run. Musicals are my favorite genre. I was not impressed. I think it got too much hype before it opened. I felt the same about
La La Land. However, I found the latter much more entertaining including much better score.

I have a recollection of seeing this during a re-release in the 1980s in a theater and marveling at the production design. Years later I read about how all the neon was repurposed for Blade Runner, whose team apparently bought it for pennies on the dollar. I am pleasantly surprised this is getting a proper 4k restoration. I look forward to seeing it again.

A nice surprise in the mail today! View attachment 215677
Yup. Just got mine too. I'm going to watch the theatrical version first. I loved it when I saw it at Radio City, thought it was perfection, so I see no reason to "fix" it. THE COTTON CLUB, on the other hand, had all kinds of issues in its theatrical release, and I thought Coppola's "redux" went a long way to making it more understandable, and for me, a better film, in that what was there in potential, kind of lingering between the shots, became more realized in the re-edit. I'm not so sure about ONE FROM THE HEART, though.
